Mwanza in tourism promotion bid

From Daily News, Dar es Salaam

MWANZA Region has reserved some 19m/- for the promotion of its tourist attractions within and outside the country.

Addressing the region’s Second Tourism Forum here recently, Mwanza Assistant Administrative Secretary (Planning and Co-ordination) Ms Isabela Mariki, said the move was in line with their 2010 - 2013 Strategic Plan.

In 2004, the region organized an investors’ forum which charted strategies aimed at making the region a leading tourist destination that would outshine Dar es Salaam, Arusha and Kilimanjaro.

She said the forum looked into a possibility of investments in the hotel industry, preferably upgrading it to between 3 and 5 star hotels and expansion of Mwanza Airport.
